Wednesday or Friday delivery only. Must schedule by 12pm one day prior to delivery date. Other than cooling, infill for artificial grass helps weigh down the turf and keeps the artificial grass from getting wrinkles or ripples caused by movement and climate change. It also helps the grass blades stand up and keep its real look in high traffic areas. Finally, it creates a layer that absorbs the traffic providing durability for the turf. Infill is absolutely necessary in order to complete the artificial grass project successfully. WASHED: Our silica sand is washed so only the sand crystals stay while all of the finer dust particles get washed away. This is very important because if the sand is not washed then those fine dust particles eventually accumulate and clog the drain hole.
So, how does HydroChill work?
In the past, the surface temperature of synthetic lawns was always a concern. While fake grass is great for combating harsh, dry, hot climates, high temperatures can cause the surface of the grass to require frequent rinses with water to stay cool. Perspiration is a natural means of thermoregulation called evaporative cooling. As the turf surface is heated by solar radiation, moisture stored in the HydroChill turf is released. Evaporating moisture removes heat, leaving a cooler more comfortable surface for the users. HydroChill provides maximum benefit when the sun is nearest the Earth, as shown in the solar radiation calendar. During the summer months in Australia, the sun is positioned overhead causing surfaces to absorb more energy resulting in hotter temperatures. The rotation of the Earth is also responsible for hourly variations in sunlight thus making HydroChill most effective during the hotter part of a clear day when most needed. A standard lawn with a wet surface will cause some cooling, but temperatures can quickly rise and may exceed uncomfortable levels of heat.
